Aperol Spritz

Many of you will have heard the term apéritif in cocktail discussions. In Italy, the term is aperitivo, a word dating back to the 19th century. An aperitivo is a drink which is intended to precede a meal; the low alcohol content and dry flavour are designed to get your digestive system working prior to eating, to enhance your dining experience. Most aperitivos contain Campari, Prosecco, vermouth, or – in this case – Aperol.

This cocktail is best served before a meal as your guests arrive, as intended in its native land. Feel free to serve a small platter of nibbles with the Aperol Spritz, as is often done in Italy.
